Beer added by: LeeryLeprechaun on 12-02-2012

Funk and tartness abound in this dry, golden, “old” saison aged for months in oak barrels. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a fizzy head; the retention was not great though it did leave a smattering of foam spots clinging to the tulip

Smell: Grain and funk, with some vague hints of lemon and strawberry

Taste: Grainy, up front, with acetic tartness building along with the funk; vague lemon and strawberry tones linger, after the swallow; the finish is filled with cheesy funk

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Like all of JK's offerings, this is an interesting beer; I didn't care for it as much as many of the others I have tried

Thanks, RobertH50, for the opportunity

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Jester King stemmed glass. Acquired in a trade from Trey.. thanks bro!

Pours a super hazy, cloudy dull golden body with a bubbly white head that reduces fairly quickly to a think layer of foam.
Smells sour, tart, citrusy, lactic, musty, and somewhat oaky with hints of farmhouse spices in the background.
Big sour notes of tart citric acid, fruit peels, sour apple, dry champagne, oak, caramel and spices on the finish. The aftertaste is super dry and tart, leaving an acidic sourness on the tongue. Medium carbonation, super drinkable, refreshing and crisp.

A very nicely crafted Wild Ale.. very complex and flavorful, on the acidic side. If you're into sours, this is a beer to seek out!
